Journalists Rock, Journalism Sucks

Apparently journalists rock, even though journalism itself sucks. (Read more, and weigh in, on the argument here.)

This sentiment I can agree with. Our news outlets have been plagued by scandal recently, readers don't want to pay for online content, and it's clear that the media aren't always covering the stories they should be (and when they do, the stories are usually heavily biased).

Personally, this is why I don't mind paying a TV licence fee. I'd rather at least one of our news outlets can claim some sort of objectivity (and that it can held to account on that claim).

But what do you think? What do the media need to do to become more trustworthy?
